USS California Battleship (BB-44) was the fifth ship of the United States Navy named in honor of California.
The USS California Battleship was sunk in the attack on Pearl Harbor, but managed to be salvaged and reconstructed like many other ships on Battleship Row.
The USS California served again for the remainder of World War II before being decommissioned in 1947.
